🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Polo's class at VCU.
Recall that the rate law only focuses on the reactant concentrations and has a general form of:
k = rate constant
X & Y = reactants
a & b = reactant orders
Consider this reaction and its rate law. 4A + 3B → products rate = k[A] 2 [B]2.
a) What is the order with respect to A?
b) What is the order with respect to B?
c) What is the overall reaction order?
